PfTRAMP localizes to the rhoptries of P. falciparum schizonts and merozoites.(A) Co-localization of PfTRAMP with MSP1, EBA175 and Rh2b in schizonts and free merozoites by IFA. PfTRAMP (green) co-localizes with rhoptry marker PfRh2b (red) but does not co-localize with EBA175 (red) or merozoite surface marker MSP1 (red) in schizonts and merozoites. (B)Co-localization of PfTRAMP-GFP in transgenic P. falciparum 3D7 with MSP1, AMA1 and Clag3.1. PfTRAMP-GFP (green) co-localizes with rhoptry marker Clag 3.1 (red) but not with microneme markerPfAMA1 (red) or merozoite suface marker PfMSP1 (red) in schizonts and merozoites. Nuclei were stained with DNA intercalating dye DAPI.
